The Holy Green Nationstates Isle of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dhunerin Laurderinthen with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, zero percent divorce rate, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, humorless population of 22.383 billion Ko-orenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gehrenna and Mayara. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 3,988 trillion Koronas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,191 Koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, the steaks are too high for ambassadors to butcher foreign relationships, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and therapists can always squeeze in another house-call. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ko-oren's national animal is the Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Monradhity.

Ko-oren is ranked 311th in the world and 1st in Atlantian Oceania for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 32,956.29 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
